Ok I have received emails from some folks around that are worried because they haven't seen me and with the violence and things going on got worried. I am alive everyone, just apparently behind on my job. A few things have happened and on May 2 my dear neighbor and friend of 10 years passed away and it was very difficult, he suffered from liver cancer and he really suffered these past few months. The actions of the hospital convinced me that the US would be making a fatal error if they embark on national health care. We have it, my neighbor who had not been a drinker, but had been affected by Hep B years ago, bled to death, because they did not have an ability to do an endoscopy to discover if he could be fixed internally. Later we found that would have been impossible as his hepatic vein ruptured, but knowing that would have made acceptance of what happened easier. I really miss him, he was close to my father's age and gave fantastic advice and told stories that kept me on the edge of my seat with interest...RIP don Felipe. He would have turned 62 on May 3 the day after he passed.
Threats have gotten to me as well. I received a few of them, but I guess I am a glutton for punishment, I won't back down.
